Galileo's neglected youthful works that Favaro fortunately included in this National Ed.
This volume is one Galileo's "juvenile works" (iuvenilia). In it, he references St. Thomas (regarding the question of the eternity of the world; cf. De Æternitate Mundi), St. Albert the Great, et al.; thus, Galileo was certainly familiar with Scholasticism and Thomism.
